  Computer reboots
Posted by: Super Mario - 12-13-2018, 08:11 AM - Forum: Hardware Repairs and Troubleshooting - Replies (7)

Yesterday I was using the computer and it just shut down. After a few minutes or so I could switch it back. So I thought this is strange but the electrician had been in the day before and the power had been on and off a few times. I thought maybe that had something to do with it. I have my speakers plugged into an extension lead. Last night I pulled the speaker plug out and the computer rebooted itself. I did it again and same result. Could this be down to a faulty extension lead. Suddenly why it shut down earlier made sense. There was a fault and it tripped the power. The computer runs absolutely fine with no random reboots.

2. Reinstall windows after the sticks have been.
3. Just install the ram and hope the re activation.
goes smooth lol
4. Or what ever you guys suggest

  laptop display flashes uncontrollably
Posted by: PhilipMoore1953 - 12-11-2018, 06:28 PM - Forum: Hardware Repairs and Troubleshooting - Replies (3)

Hi Guys,
I have a laptop coming in for service with a bit of a strange (at least to me) set of issues.
During running windows 10 (current updates) the screen will begin to flash repeatedly then will go blank.
This can occur after 5-10 minutes running or after hours of running.
There is nothing showing on the screen after it goes blank. restarting the OS temporarily resolves the problem until next time.

This typically happens when using MS office Word or Excel.

  How do I get Windows Defender running again
Posted by: imcanadian - 12-11-2018, 02:30 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (14)

I had a problem with my program of Windows Defender as they are not running at the moment. All I see is when I clicked Threat service has stopped. Restart it now. Unexpected error. Sorry, we ran into a problem. Please try again.

Now how do I get this working again? Any idea with this to get Threat service start again. First I think I better give you a story about what I did with my desktop this morning. I ran Tweaking Windows Repair 4.4.0 in safe mode to repair my operating system of Windows 10 Pro. After that job was done and restarted the desktop in normal mode. Surprised to see that Windows Defender is not running after Windows Repair 4.4.0 ran through in safe mode. Anyway here is the message the guy name Shane is the one who wrote the program, Tweaking Windows Repair 4.4.0 and read below what he said.

OK so here is what I found in my testing, it wasnt any single repair breaking windows 10 1809, the antivirus or anything else. It was windows itself!

I found in my testing that 1809 has a bug where when you use the bcdedit command to set safemode with networking and then use the bcdedit to remove the command it doesn't fully work. Those are the commands my program uses to get windows into safe mode.

So what happens is 2 registry keys are created by windows when using bcdedit but when you remove the command the 2 registry keys are not removed! So windows thinks its still in safe mode when it isnt, and so no service that isnt allowed to run in safe mode will start! This means windows updates not opening, antiivirus not working all of it and a ton more. This didn't happen in older builds or older versions of Windows.

So in the new version of my program (v4.4.0 released today as of this post) I have WR set to remove those two registry keys! After that everything works great and the repairs arent actually breaking anything.

So if you get a user who has this trouble, there is a way to fix it! two ways actually.

1st way: Have them load up the new version of WR and have WR restart in safe mode, once in safe mode open WR and then simply close it. WR will remove the registry keys when it closes and then restart windows. This is by far the easiest way for users.

2nd way: In the program folder under the files folder and then the regfiles folder I made a remove_stuck_safemode.reg files that will delete the registry keys if they are there. All a user needs to do is double click on it and then restart windows. While this may seem easier, it also means telling some users how to actually find the file, which you know isn't always easy.

Keeping up with the constant changes and new bugs in every new build of Windows 10 is a challenge, thanks for hanging in there with me!

I did the 2nd way to go in program folder under the files folder and then the regfiles folder then find the reg file, " remove_stuck_safemode.reg " then double click on that reg file and at last restart the desktop into normal mode.

Well that problem did not solve this and I am stuck with this part that Windows Defender is not working properly. Is there another way to fix this problem to get Windows Defender working again. I know I can't uninstall Windows Defender because is a part of Windows 10 operating system. Oh mine is Windows 10 Professional 64-bit edition.

Let me know any solution to solve this problem. I know that is my biggest mistake to run Tweaking Windows Repair 4.4.0 and is already gone from the hard drive.

Looking forward to hear about this.

Thank you,

Thumbs Down A Windows 10 Buggy Update Broke My Internet Connection!!! Now what?. . .
Posted by: FearlessOne4832 - 12-07-2018, 01:33 AM - Forum: Windows 10 - Replies (5)

It was about 2-3 weeks ago that Windows 10 Professional version 1803 automatically downloaded and installed one of Microsoft's buggy updates to my computer without my permission, and low and behold I had a working Internet connection BEFORE the update installed, then I had to shutdown my computer and go to work that day; I came home from work and turned my computer on and booted up Windows 10 and low and behold, there was no Internet connection. And despite all of my best efforts to research and fix the problem, I have come up with no solution so far, and I think the cause of the problem must be buried somewhere deep in the operating system that is far beyond my knowledge to know what to do to fix it, and hopefully not somewhere in some secure part of the operating system where the problem is beyond my access and unrepairable (only accessible to Microsoft, that is).

I have isolated this problem to Windows 10 because my Internet connection still works on the same machine in the Linux operating system. My Internet connection also works when running various boot/rescue disks on the same machine as well as on other devices such as my smartphone and my tablet PC. So, with that in mind, I know that the cause of the problem can't be a hardware issue or a problem with my Internet Service Provider (that doesn't make any sense); it has to be a software issue in Windows 10, since that is the only place where I have no Internet connection.

I have tried many troubleshooting steps to fix this problem, including those listed in this article. Heck, I have even tried converting my physical/native Windows 10 Professional installation into a VMware Virtual Machine image using converstion software from a company called Starwind, and then running Windows 10 in a Virtual Machine on top of Linux Mint and I still have the same problem.

I do not want to have to reinstall Windows 10. If I did it could potentially take me a month to set everything back up again, and that just sounds like such a waste of time and a HUGE setback. I'd rather try and see if there is a way to manually fix the problem before I cave in and give up and just try to do a fresh installation, and then potentially download the same buggy update again in the future and wind up with the same problem all over again (geesh, if only I had more control over the downloading and installing of these updates).

Please help! I need a guardian Angel !!! Desperately!!! Wink
